Keys won't repeat

I can not type consecutive keys without waiting a few seconds between each keystroke. It has nothing to do with Stickykeys or repeat speed.

You may be tripping over an accessibility option. Try this:

1. Click the Start->Control Panel menu item.
2. Click Ease of Access.
3. Under Ease of Access Center, click Change How Your Keyboard Works.
4. If Turn On FilterKeys is checked, UNcheck it.
5. Click Apply or Save.

I had same problem, My fix was because I had a "EZ@home" wireless PC Remote Control plugged in. And it has a media toggle switch, which turns the keyboard into a Media Center Friendly Keyboard. Once I deactivated this My Keyboard Works Perfectly!
Check for something of the same on your PC, any additional keyboards or controllers on board?????

Hello i was writing an email and held down the shift key for to long and an box came up with three options so i just pushed cancelled and now the keyboard is not working properly.capslock is back to front....


It seems your sticky keys got turned on somehow. Press shift key five times and it should turn off the sticky keys feature and fix your problem.

You might be wondering what is this feature all about, so here goes:

StickyKeys is an accessibility feature to aid users who have physical disabilities, but it is also used by others as a means to reduce RSI (or a syndrome called the Emacs Pinky). It essentially serializes keystrokes instead of pressing multiple keys at a time: StickyKeys allows the user to press a modifier key, such as Shift, Ctrl, Alt, or the Windows key, and have it remain active until another key is pressed.

Q key keps printing


Understand and use (or make sure they’re turned off) keyboard Accessibility Options. There are several types of help for those with typing difficulties, namely:
StickyKeys is an accessibility feature designed for people who have difficulty holding down two or more keys at a time. When a shortcut requires a key combination such as CTRL+P, StickyKeys will enable you to press one key at a time instead of pressing them simultaneously.
FilterKeys: You can set Windows to ignore keystrokes that occur in rapid succession, or keystrokes that are held down for several seconds unintentionally.
Bounce Keys: If you bounce your fingers on keys inadvertently, Bounce Keys will ignore repeated keystrokes until some time has passed. You choose the time period.
Repeat Keys and Slow Keys: The computer will ignore brief keystrokes according to the time limits you set. To access these Options and turn them off or on, go to your Control Panel– click Start >Settings >Control Panel >Accessibility Options.

By default it opens to the keyboard tab. If you are experiencing a sudden onset of bizarre typing behavior, your first step is to visit here and ensure that there are no checks in the three checkboxes, which indicates these Options are in use.
I mentioned that shortcuts ‘activate’ these features — such as Tab+Enter, and a couple of Alt+a letter– and so you may have turned them on unintentionally.
If you do have some difficulty with your typing, such as happens when a Mr. Arthur Itis comes to visit, or/and if you have tremors, here is where you can enable these aids and tweak their settings to get the most benefit from them. Click on the “Settings” button to see the choices. Below is the FilterKeys Settings dialogue.

In the case mentioned, my client had first held down the Shift key long enough to activate FilterKeys (because a finger “rests” there). The lady was an extremely fast typist, and this setting ignored her strokes as being too short. Since she has no use for this tool, I recommended that she uncheck the top checkbox and disable the activating shortcut.

This screenshot shows the settings for StickyKeys, and unless you have trouble holding down more than one key at the same time — such as Ctrl+Alt+Del to activate Task Manager — I suggest you uncheck the top checkbox here as well.

Keyboard beeps when any key is pressed


I found out what was wrong in my case. Someone had tampered with the accessibility options

So for anyone with keyboard problem check :
In Windows XP : control panel-> accessibility options -> keyboard : StickyKeys and Filterkeys checkboxes should be unchecked.

In Windows Vista : Ease of access -> Ease of access center -> keyboard : StickyKeys and Filterkeys checkboxes should be unchecked.
